April Retreat

I'm getting ready for an April weekend retreat (17-19 April) with my QuiltingForAll yahoo group. We're sewing up Framed Four Patch blocks from the quilterscache site. The four patch section is to be white or white on white with any floral and the "frame" is to be light to medium green.

Just have to share the retreat organiser's reasons for choosing this fabric combination ... "I chose these colours because it's been a long winter here and I'm so starved for greenery and flowers." It'll be a pleasure to help out ;-).

Seeing as the four patch needs to be in 3" x 6" pieces I thought I'd buy a couple of 40 piece 7" charm packs. I bought a white on white pack and an Ivana's Garden pack and some lovely spring green fabric for the frame from my local patchwork shop, shown below.


  1. I saw your icon pop up in my folowers list. Thank you very much! I'm so pleased with it. Hope you will enjoy my blog. I'm planning to wright a little bit about my mom's quilting, too, in the future. Hope you'll like that.

  4. Thanks Marina, I've incorporated a free blogger template 'Amy's Wedding' from Delightful Dots
